As I described, it isn't "an EXE file", it is a perl script. You need to
install perl on your machine first, then you can run the binlang tool on the
.lang file fine.

If your hebrew lang file is an update/improvement to the one that is already
present in the apps/lang/ directory, then you could submit it to the patch
tracker and one of us will take care of putting it into CVS. When done so,
